@ZipLine-- Most people can avoid ingrown hair by growing a beard. If you're still having problems, you might want to see a dermatologist.
There are certain skin conditions (such as keratosis pilaris) that may cause chronic ingrown hair despite all precautions.
By the way, are you exfoliating? If you want to stop ingrown hair, you have to exfoliate regularly, whether you have a beard or not.
